Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard

Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard

Paul Simon

The mama pajama rolled out of bed
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout
And he started the investigation

It's against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
It was against the law

The mama looked down and spit on the ground
Every time my name gets mentioned
The papa said oy if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention

Well I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way I'm taking my time

But I done know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona

See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard

Me and Julio down by the schoolyard
In a couple of days they come and
Take me away

But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest
Come to get me released
We was all on the cover of Newsweek
And I'm on my way

I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way I'm taking my time
But I don't know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona

See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
